In 1923 B.F. Goodrich coined the term "zipper" for a new style of fastener used on their rubber boots and the hardware has found it's way onto all types of footwear ever since. Our Side Zip boot features a narrow shaft with a full length zipper on the medial side. This sleek silhouette draws inspiration from vintage military and western footwear. After a lengthy development period, we are excited to debut this new pattern in a luxurious Italian Horsehide from a small, artisanal tannery. Purchase the Side Zip Black Washed Horsehide here.
